Everything's Already All Right

Story

Three summers ago, in 2013, I attended a Relief Society meeting where we heard a bishop (leader of a congregation called a ward) of another ward in our area speak about life, relationships, spirituality, and perseverance through trials, coming from his perspective as a counselor/therapist.   I took many notes the whole time, but as he was closing, almost in passing as he remembered this saying of his, he gave us this quote--"Everything is already all right," meaning, in my interpretation, because of Jesus Christ and His mission to atone for our sins and succor us in our weaknesses, infirmities, and trials by the things he experienced, everything in our lives, the heartaches, the unfulfilled expectations, the struggles, the imperfections we had, would all be made right in Him--and because of that, we didn't have to worry that it couldn't be made right, as long as we had faith in His power to make it, to make us, all right.  I quickly wrote it down, thinking, that's a really cool thought.  Three months later, in preparing for a program, I was going through my notebook for ideas for songs I was in the process of writing, and came upon this quote that I had forgotten about, and immediately thought, "That is a song!" And so, over the next days, weeks, months, and even years, this song came into being, and I have finally had a chance to record it.  I'm not the greatest vocalist, and piano-only isn't necessarily the most powerful conception of this piece, but I offer it, in the spirit of this message, "Everything is already all right!" 

Lyrics

My heart grows heavy with the trials that throng my way,

Tasks too great, a struggling child, debts that I can’t pay.

I wonder if I’ve done it right, what He’s required of me,

With mistakes & sins that fill my path, the future seems so bleak. 

Then I hear, then I feel--

 

In him, everything’s already all right,

cause He’ll strengthen my best efforts in His might.

As I trust His pow’r, He’ll do what I can’t, so I’ll follow His light,

Believing that with faith in Him, everything’s already all right. 

 

He said to us, “Be perfect, even as I am,”

Though we have our weakness, & fight the natural man.

It’s our goal, but it doesn’t mean that we won’t make our mistakes,

Falling short, falling down, depressed by what it takes.

But I hear, and I feel,

 

In Him, everything’s already all right.

He’ll make strong my best efforts in His might.

That’s His plan, to make us whole, as we follow His light,

Believing that with faith in Him, everything’s already all right. 

 

So, Lord, I will rise again with grace each time I fall,

I know that Thou knows the path, descending below all.

I’ll keep learning and repenting, then conquering in His pow’r,

Seeing that I’m changing, growing closer every hour….

 

To the woman that he sees in me, One who can do all….

Through faith in Him, e’en as I am, I will heed His call.

I will not be daunted by weakness nor by fear,

Because my heart is broken, I know He’s always near…

With His grace, With his pow’r, Making….

 

Everything already all right,

Making whole my broken spirit with His might.

Though the world says perfect’s out of reach, it’s just too hard to be,

He can perfect make us all, as perfect as can be.

 

Cause in Him, everything’s already all right,

By His love, He makes us perfect in His sight.

So I’ll join with Him, live & love like Him, believe with all my might,

Giving all my thanks to Him,

Cause He’s made everything already all right.

 

Only in Him, everything’s already all right.

New: Glenn Rawson Stories & Sheet Music PDFs

Please check out my new sections, Glenn Rawson Stories and Sheet Music PDFs under Sacred Music. 

Sheet music is finally becoming available!

I LOVE sharing this music with you! 

PLEASE READ to see what you can do for me! 

My goal is to give you something that you can use, not something that will clutter up your files because it doesn't suit the abilities or circumstances of your performer(s).  If what you get doesn't work for your circumstances, please contact me and we will work together to modify the key, the difficulty of the piano part, or the treble/bass configuration so it is something you can use.  

Currently I have decided that I will offer my music, both sheet music PDFs and mp3 downloads, for free.  There are many others who do sell their music, but for me, the time, energy, and emotional mindspace involved in selling it does not make it worth what little I might make at that route.  Please use this music to the fullest.  That's the greatest thing I want.  And a few miracles to help my family that come when we put our trust in Him and let go of our agendas. 

I know there are many out there who don't like to take anything for free.  If you'd like, you can donate through the GoFundMe link here gofund.me/cjvzvk or on my homepage. 

I would love a continuing relationship with those use this music, in a way that we can both benefit from. I may update this song as it continues to be performed and used--and as hard as I have tried to edit it, there may be a mistake that slips through--let me know if you find something.  Also, if you have any great suggestions, let me know.  Please give me your email through my website and I will send you updates, as well as new music as it becomes available. ‚Äč

You can also like my pages on Facebook, ChristineMonsonMusic.org and WeSingofChrist.org, or subscribe to the YTouTube Channels with the same names.  Please share links to this music from these two websites, these Facebook pages, and from Youtube on your social media pages so we can share this music, and the spirit and truths in it, with as many as possible.

These downloads give permission to you to make copies for you and any group you are a part of.  However, as a courtesy, and to assist me, if others you know want to perform this at another time and place, with another group, please have them download this themselves.  I also don't own the inspiration you might receive.  You can modify it as you need.  However, I would love to know when and how you use it!  Send those stories to me.  It keeps me going! 

These small things you can do will greatly assist me in this ongoing project of writing and recording this music and making it available for you and everyone else.   

You can listen to and download these songs and sheet music either here at this website, or at freeldssheetmusic.org.  In the future, much of this music will also be streamed and shared on Youtube with video. 

Thank you!  

Christine
